I'm really starting to think there are a lot of people out there who actually do not understand the difference between killing someone and murdering someone. In more than one of the reviews of my novel, A Death on the Wolf, a reader has referenced the "murder" toward the end. There is no "murder" in my book. The main character shoots someone in self-defense.  Likewise, I just watched this interview of Donna Tartt (done in London) about her new novel, The Goldfinch. In her novel there is a shooting toward the end where her main character kills someone in self-defense. The interviewer asks Ms. Tartt about the "murder" in her novel, and rather than correcting the mistake, she essentially affirms the interviewer's assertion that the killing was a murder.  Killing someone in self-defense is not murder.  Period.

Experience the Wolf River

If you're ever down in the Gulfport / Pass Christian area of Mississippi and want to see and experience the river that Nelson and Frankie grew up around in A Death on the Wolf, check out Wolf River Canoe & Kayak.
